You can be the highest paid ever and spend it all = your poor. Hit a bump in the road and your bankrupt.
Don't get me wrong, I don't feel sorry for Fitch or any fighter. That's their chosen path. While he and any other fighter need to be careful and live within their means, I can't comment on his lifestyle because I really don't know. I'm not going to hate on a guy cause he has a nice pick up. I was simply pointing out that he has gone almost 10 months without income and could see how that would put anybody in a financial bind. How many people have budgeted a years income worth of savings. Good on you if you do! He had a good night but by and large that was due to a healthy win bonus and FOTN bonus. Which he can't always count on. Hopefully he learned a bit of a financial lesson and hopefully he stays healthy so that he can earn more money for his family.
